The Visiting Distinguished Lecture
June 12, 2015 • 7 pm
St. Mary’s Kerrisdale, 2490 West 37th Avenue
Renowned author Kathleen Norris will speak on what the Christian view of the desert, from the Bible to the early church literature, can teach us today. Kathleen Norris is the award-winning poet, writer, and author of The New York Times bestsellers The Cloister Walk, Dakota: A Spiritual Geography, Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith, and The Virgin of Bennington. Exploring the spiritual life, her work is at once intimate and historical, rich in poetry and meditations, brimming with exasperation and reverence, deeply grounded in both nature and spirit, sometimes funny, and often provocative.
This is a free event and open to the public.
